MUJI used a sophisticated segmentation strategy in their series of Father’s Day reminders, driving seasonal revenue throughout the month. Before the holiday, the brand texted their curated gift guide to all subscribers. On Father’s Day, MUJI sent another campaign to their segment of subscribers who hadn’t shopped the sale yet to further incentivize non-purchasers, and drive last-minute holiday revenue.

Why We Love It:

Living in Yellow shared a roundup of 15+ gift ideas to inspire SMS subscribers’ Father’s Day shopping lists. The timely reminder (“only two weeks away”) created some urgency for subscribers to check out the list and get their gift in time. This non-promotional strategy positioned Living in Yellow as a helpful resource, and encouraged subscribers to explore more of the brand and their related content.
